Susan Geissler’s subtitle is Mayflower and Puddle Jumper. The two figures are based on childhood memories of Susan and her siblings testing out the new raingear. This work shows a moment of rest, and exudes a soft, gentle, whimsical emotion—a hallmark of her work. She states “Beauty is an antidote for the pressures and stresses of life. It has a special generosity, because it is right there, and available to your senses.”
Susan began her career in 1984, and has worked in a variety of visual art studio, history and design areas. Her consistent exhibition record in a range of galleries has led to her being considered one of the premier designers of the human figure in the U.S.
Susan Geissler began her art career in 1984, after schooling in Fine Arts, and working as an anatomical illustrator, graphic designer and art history researcher, between 1984-1989. Susan's work was seen and enjoyed by millions of people at top outdoor art events around the United States. Currently, she confines the showing of her artwork primarily to galleries, plus occasional commercial events and print advertising. The scores of commissions, awards and prizes accorded her work have contributed to her growing reputation, and have stamped her as one of the premier designers of human figures in the United States.
Susan considers her studio a small outpost of quality, integrity and love of the sculptural science. From this workplace in a small Western New York village, after intense research and anatomical study, several lovingly rendered pieces per year emerge--some exploding with dazzling motion...some resting quietly, but exuding the soft, gentle, whimsical emotion that is a hallmark of her work.
